There is a reason there are a lot of images like this on the internet.

Video games have been one of the fastest growing entertainment forms ever. This hasn’t gone unnoticed by other types of entertainment such as TV and movies, and almost without fail, any time a major blockbuster is being released or a show gains enough popularity, a video game adaption is not far behind.

Batman: Arkham City Review

When it was released back in 2009, the original Batman: Arkham Asylum was a mega surprise hit, and changed the game when it came to licensed game quality.

Despite some technical problems, I have found my leading pick for Game of the Year, in a year full of Uncharted 3’s and Skyrim’s.¬†
